Product Description

Entanglement refers to a process in quantum physics whereby two particles become so linked that a change in one is instantly reflected in the other, even if it is light years away. So the physical world is not atomistic, but relational. Polkinghorne and 12 other scientists and theologians comment on this almost magical quality. 232 pages, softcover. Eerdmans.

Publisher's Description

Twentieth-century science discovered that the physical world is deeply relational. In fact, the phenomenon of quantum entanglement implies that even the subatomic world cannot simply be treated atomistically. With that in mind, thirteen distinguished scholars from physics and theology here explore the role of relationality in both science and religion.

Besides containing expert accounts — both scientific and theological — this volume provides careful assessment of the significance that these insights have for the interdisciplinary discussion of a consonant relationship between science and religion — a topic of considerable importance. The Trinity and an Entangled World offers a uniquely authoritative and illuminating discussion and will prove to be an important contribution to the literature concerned with science and religion.
